Of course you might find Cranston's decision surprising, but we don't. Because if, like us, you were really down with your Power Rangers trivia, you'd know that he's already starred in the show – as Snizzard, the snake-bellied lizard monster.

A lot for the academy to mull over, for sure. The movie is set for release on 24 March, 2017.
